More About Sea Detail by William D. Sullivan
 
 
 
Overview
Covering almost four decades of naval service, SEA DETAIL is the story of one naval officer's career at sea and ashore. From the Vietnam War to the War on Terror, Admiral Sullivan was a participant in world events throughout the last quarter of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first. From his early days as a junior officer to his rise through the ranks to vice admiral, we watch history unfold through his eyes. As a young junior officer, he learns his trade, makes mistakes and grows through experiences, both good and bad. With his college sweetheart by his side, he balances the excitement of adventures at sea and in foreign ports and the ache of long separations from his family. His is a compelling story, rich with the experience of participating in world events and self-discovery as each assignment shapes his life and that of his family. His experiences as the commanding officer of two ships superbly detail the challenges and responsibilities our Navy places on ship captains. Achieving flag rank, his perspective changes from the narrow concentration of commanding a warship to the broader strategic challenges of national security. Admiral Sullivan's tale will carry you around the world, from the frozen climes north of the Arctic Circle to the brutal heat of the Persian Gulf. His experiences in the Pentagon, at the White House, in front of Congress and at NATO Headquarters provide uncanny insights into our nation's national security apparatus at work. This is a compelling story, one of the thousands that can be told by those who have served our country in uniform.
